A choir for students with special needs has benefited from a £2,000 donation to the Worthing and Adur Fund.

Oak Grove College Signing Choir showed its appreciation by singing and signing at the cheque presentation ceremony.

Peter Webb, managing director at Electronic Temperature Instruments, in Easting Close, Worthing, presented a cheque for £2,000 at the community special college in Durrington.

The choir will benefit from the fund through a grant for T-shirts, transport and publicity. The inspiring group is available to perform at events, led by teacher Mia Langley.

Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has taken the lead in developing the new charitable fund, in partnership with Sussex Community Foundation.

Karen Simporis, vice president, said: “The chamber has worked with the foundation to promote this permanent fund which, as it grows, will provide grants from the income it earns for charities and community groups, for years to come.”
